Cleaning Up

At the age of 20, Barry Minkow became the youngest person ever to take a company public. His carpet cleaning company, ZZZZ Best was making millions, and earning big dividends for investors. But by the time he was 21, Minkow and ZZZZ Best had been exposed. He was running a $300 million fraud, and Minkow was sentenced to prison. That was in 1988. He's free now, a minister and dedicated fraud-buster, exposing the crooks who use tricks he used to use. And Minkow is author of a book intended for people who have suffered a huge, maybe self-inflicted, setback.
